FEIOETFTJL EAILWAY CASUALTY.
Tuesday evening-,' during the
closing-Jiours of the old year there
occurred at Paxton one of those
frightful railroad casualties which
causes the heart of man to almost
still its beating- by reason of horror.
That evening- train No. 1, the lim
ited west bound fast passenger train
left North Platte something- like
one hour and one-half late, or about
5:25 o'clock. Engineer Geo. W.
Vroman held the throttle ot engine
804, which drew the train, and was
endeavoring to make up as much of
the lost time as possible. He
reached the eastern village in Keith
county at a trifle past 6 o'clock just
as the section men were returning
from their labors. The latter discovering-
the rapidly approaching
train in the dim twilight,. at the
east station switch hastily endeav
ored to lift their hand-car to the
side-track. Ere thev could do so:
the huge machine was upon them,
with the result that
foreman, Alexander Craigie and
Ferdinand Eeichert, a section man,
were instantly killed. At the time
ortue catastrophe both victims were
upon the track, while another sec-
ticm man who was outside the rails
escaped uninjured. Owing to
there being a considerable curve
just east of the switch, and the
semi-darkness, engineer Vroman
was unable to see them in time to
prevent the casualty, and in fact
was not just certain 'that the en
gine had struck them, but reported
the matter at the station with the
suggestion that it be investigated.
Both bodies were frightfully
Mr. Craigie worked in George
Lannin's gang in this city a couple
of years ago, -but had been promoted
to the foremanship of the east Pax
ton section. He leaves a wife and
four children. The deceased was a
brother-in-law of James Downie, of
this city. Mr. Reichert leaves a
widow and ten small children to
mourn his loss, six of the latter
having been born as. triplets. The
family of each- victim was wholly
dependent upon the exertions of,the
head thereof for their support, and
neuuer or mem was tortunate
enough to carry any life insurance".
The remains of Mr. Craigie were
brought to this city on No. 4 Wed

funeral services beinir conducted

THE AGRICULTURAL ASSOCIATION AGAIN
I fear that there may be those
who have some misgivings in refer
ence to the object of the above as
sociation. It should be as its name suggests
an association organized alone for
rr . . , .
the purpose of furthering the agri-
cultural interest of this county; to
exchange news upon the raising of
such crops as can be most success-
fully grown here and the care of our
live stock, etc., a"s Mr. Port sug-
Wuilcl have no objection to a
man airing nis political views in

But that is not the idea I had. I
feel that nothing pays so well as

sion should be honored by being
professionally performed, and the
farmer that is not a student of his
proiession deserves no more success
than the drones of other professions.
Next spring I expect to move to
my farm and to remain there until
starved or sold out. Of the former
I have no anticipations, as I expect
to make farming my studv, and I
feel that there are other farmers in pected home from Gothenburg this

of American newspapers. The
